I don’t know if this is a UK only thing, but it’d be very unusual for a venue not to provide their own cutting knife.  Have you checked?

That set IS very fancy, but I guess you could engrave the metal parts with your names etc.

My husband and I used a cake serving set, like you.  It is a Vera Wang design (like my dress) put out by Wedgwood, and it matched our theme beautifully.  🙂

And yes, of course, you should keep the set!  You’ll be so glad you did.  It will be a wonderful keepsake for years to come.

MacKaylarae:  That’s pretty! It’s become a family tradition now that we use a Lenox set and have it engraved. The mother of the bride purchases it and gifts it to the bride at her shower. Lenox can be found at the Lenox factory, Macys, bed bath & beyond, and I’m sure other retailers.

daffodils:  Many places do offer a cake cutting service and/or the utensils to do so … but – and perhaps this is an American tradition – most couples prefer to have their own set, in order to have it as a keepsake.  🙂

My aunt ordered us an set of Lenox cutting and serving set, along with toasting glasses. They came in Amazon boxes, so you could check there? Here’s a photo of them

I think I’m just using the venue’s set.  It’s literally just for one slice I’m cutting and then going to go in storage bc I’ll probably never use it again.  The sets I’ve all seen are like $60! I just don’t think it’s worth it.  I do love your set you bought, though!

MacKaylarae:  It’s gorgeous- I wanted to buy the same one but toying with whether it’s an unnecessary expense. Definitely not tacky. 🙂

I ordered my set from Pottery barn. It was affordable and is silver plated so I’ll be able to use it at christmas and other holidays for years to come. I wanted something simple but still nice so it wasn’t exclusive to our wedding or a throw away, it’s just a beautiful cake cutting set.

I was planning on using my great-grandmother’s set, but we were gifted a set at a shower. Not sure where they came from but they have huge crystal rhinestones as the handles, they are super cute and unique.

And I absolutely love yours from BHLDN! They are not gaudy, just more modern than most. I think they’re beautiful.

We are having a Nerdy wedding and am using a small replica sword from our favorite movie to cut our cake with.  Very unconventional but it is perfect for us!
